Chocolate Bunnies

Can I tell you a secret?
I absolutely hate sketches with a tilted square.
Hate them.

When I saw the sketch over at Mojo Monday yesterday, it had a tilted square panel right smack dab in the middle - oh the horror! I decided to give it a whirl and step out of my comfort zone. After all, it IS supposed to be a challenge right?
Here's what I came up with... It's not totally hideous. In fact, I think I kind of like how it turned out. I can't even remember the last time that I used a solid image that didn't require coloring!
This chocolate bunny image from the current SU mini catalog was just too cute to resist. I clear embossed him on Close to Cocoa cardstock so he would be shiny.

Then I added some tiny green pearls to the top corner.
And since I was already challenging myself with the sketch, I decided to take it a step farther and try another new technique. Easel cards seem to be all the rage these days, so I decided to give it a try. Here's what it looks like opened up...
I used a sentiment from SUs "Oh So Sweet" set.
Here's a side view...
Thanks for stopping by today. I'm off to the Farmers Market!
